City Centre - Mixed Use

The objectives of the City Centre - Mixed Uses Zone are to ensure consistency with the general objectives of the Strategic Regional Centre, and in addition, to:

  1. facilitate residential and mixed use development in proximity to regional public transport facilities, with limitations on the scale of commercial development to avoid displacement of existing housing or fragmentation of residential development

  2. ensure that any commercial development within the zone is complementary to development in other zones of the Strategic Regional Centre and does not prejudice consolidation of commercial development elsewhere in the centre

  3. promote the development of multi-storey buildings with articulated facades and consistent small front setbacks designed and landscaped to provide an attractive urban streetscapes conducive to both residential and commercial use

  4. promote the shared use of vehicular access and car parking facilities where such arrangements will result in improved, more efficient use of land and more attractive development.
